Hello,
I'm new on this forum. I have a Mac Pro with part number A1186 EMC I think is early 2008. I want to change the video card. Now I have a Ati Radeon X1900XT. What model of Ati or Nvidia can I use?

Many Thanks!

What's your budget. Various video cards available at various prices.

It's just like saying..."I'm looking for a new car...what's available?" You could get a Hyundai for $15,000 or a Ferrari for $225,000.
